More extensive facilities can be found in Ludlow, Shrewsbury and Telford. Communications within the area are good with the A49 linking to the A5 north via Oswestry towards Chester and east via the A5/M54 to Telford, Wolverhampton and Birmingham. Church Stretton, Craven Arms and Ludlow are on the main Manchester to Cardiff railway line. Regional International airports are at Liverpool, Manchester and Birmingham.

Asterton Hall is a spacious, character property, in approximately one acre (0.4 ha) of land with uncompromised sights on every aspect, from wild ponies of the Long Mynd, to south and southwestern skies across the Onny Valley and onwards towards the Welsh borders in the distant view.

On the ground floor the accommodation comprises: a boot room, kitchen / breakfast room with Rayburn, study / dining room, hallway and a large sitting room with log burner which leads to a decking area.

On the first floor there are two bedrooms, including the master bedroom with en suite, and the family bathroom.

On the second floor there is a large, open-plan family / games room, two further bedrooms and a further family bathroom.

On the lower ground floor there is a one bedroom annexe which includes a large living room with log burner, a bedroom, shower room and a kitchen. This area boasts very flexible accommodation for a multitude of purposes, including an annexe for a relation, guest quarters or perhaps even the potential to open a Bed & Breakfast. It includes its own pedestrian access from the lane, sun terrace and private garden.

Outside there is ample parking, a double garage, large private gardens, a summerhouse plus various outbuildings and an adjoining paddock with fruit trees. Asterton is popular with horse riding as it has access to out riding across all the Long Mynd and across the fields and woodland tracks. Stables could easily be installed on the land and additional paddock of land could be for sale by separate negotiation.

The overall package is a rare opportunity, set in an idyllic position, surrounded by countryside which is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
